Christmas Chocolate Fudge



This irresistible Christmas chocolate fudge is a great treat or gift for the festive season!
 
Ingredients (makes 64 pieces)
395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons glucose syrup
125g butter, chopped
180g dark chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup bottled fruit mince
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped dry-roasted hazelnuts
 
Method
1. Grease pan a 4cm deep, 20cm (base) square cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang on all sides.
2. Place condensed milk, sugar, syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, without boiling, for 10 minutes or until mixture is glossy and sugar has dissolved.
3. Increase heat to medium-low. Bring to a simmer, stirring. Cook, stirring, for 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture thickens and comes away from side of pan. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate, fruit mince, cranberries and hazelnuts until combined and chocolate melted. Spoon into prepared pan. Smooth top. Set aside for 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 6 hours or until firm.
4. Cut into 2.5cm pieces. Serve.
 
Notes 
Use a heavy-based saucepan for even heat and to prevent fudge from sticking to the base and burning. Fudge sets quickly, so work fast when stirring in the chocolate and spreading it into the pan or it may seize. Store fudge in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
